At last, I really did it.
After about five hundred black and white pictures I thought it was finally time to publish something with color on my website. To honor the occasion I wanted these pictures to really make good use of colors.
So I decided for ice marbles. I filled food colors and water in little balloons, put them in the freezer and on the next day removed the balloons.
I got the idea from Kate's blog where she gives easy to follow step by step instructions on how to make your own ice marbles. Thank you, Kate :)
I started out with taking pictures of the ice marbles outside:
But I was hoping for more dramatic light effects so I went inside:
The "Making of" :-)
In order to photograph the ice marbles I put them in a huge wine glass. Here you see the original picture and the final picture without the glass:
